About The Teacher

Hi there, I’m Ja’Neisha - an optimistic, outspoken, world-travelling, adventure-loving pharmacist, who is going to breathe LIFE into this retreat experience. I’ve a passion for encouraging people & making them laugh (I missed my opportunity as comedian lol). Additionally, I LOVE creating itineraries and meaningful experiences. I’ve planned my NUMEROUS solo travel experiences to over 6 COUNTRIES, 9 NATIONAL PARKS, 2 WORLD WONDERS, 4 EXTREME HIKES, THE 2ND LARGEST CORAL REEF SYSTEM IN THE WORLD & MULTIPLE ADRENALINE-JUNKIE EXCURSIONS.

Apart from exploring new countries & cultures, I enjoy hiking, reading, journaling, socializing, listening to jazz music and volunteering in my community. My love for trying new things & building community among my peers is why I’M CRAZY excited to have you as a potential attendee on my women’s empowerment retreat. As a pharmacist, I'm constantly bombarded with challenges that require a level head, strong confidence, a positive attitude and immense self reflection - all of which, I attribute to my daily self care regimen & my ability to reflect on my personal growth. Before launching my retreats, I often wondered how other women coped with the realities of life, love, work and the ENTIRE female experience. Heavy stuff, I know! Not exactly something you could address during dinner or at the gym. Certainly not a subject you could broach online or it would lack the same effect as a face-to-face conversation. Yet the question tugged at my brain like an incessant toddler in a candy store. How DO other women balance physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness?

With this ever-present thought in my head, I was driven by a desire to create unique experience where women of all walks of life could connect, relax & learn from each other. Thus, UPLIFT & INSPIRE was born. My personal goals for creating my retreats are to help women establish a functional self care regimen and connect through the power of femininity. I CHALLENGE you to grow through the beauty of COMMUNITY. I add a personal touch to each activity, topic and discussion that you experience because I want to go on this journey with you. I love to see people WIN and I want to share that spirit with as many sisters as possible.

My retreats are not for everyone. I am looking for MOTIVATED, OPEN-MINDED, GOAL-ORIENTED women who desire deep connection within a close circle of sisters. If you want to experience the POWER of a close-knit community of strong female leaders, come on one of my retreats! Are you ready to UPLIFT & INSPIRE?

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
